The Grand Canyon is one of 20 National Parks competing for $2 million in grants to help preserve historic sites within our national parks.
The competition is through a partnership between the National Trust for Historic Preservation, National Geographic and American Express for Partners in Preservation. Individuals will get a chance to voice for their historic sites which can range from pioneer cabins, watch towers, scenic overlooks or historic hikes.
The competition started on May 25 and runs through July 5. You can go to VoteYourPark.org and determine which sites will receive the preservation grants. Users are also encouraged to share their experiences and celebrate national parks by using the hashtag #VoteYourPark.
The competition coincides with the National Parks Service centennial celebration.
